ROCKY RIVER --  Following a tough loss on Saturday against Brooklyn, the Lutheran West Longhorns faced the 9-6 Laurel Gators. Both teams played tough throughout the game, but in the end, it was the Gators who persevered and won with a score of 47-43.

The key to this game was defense. Laurel played a strong fourth quarter defense and was able to stop the charging Longhorns, who had brought the score within one before the start of the last quarter. In addition, the Gators were able to contain most of West’s offense, only allowing two Longhorns to reach double digits, seniors Lindsey Tomola (10) and Lindsay Thomas (12). On the other hand, LW struggled to contain the Gators’ tough guard, Nicole Felice, who carried her team with 27 points.

In the end, the Longhorns’ offense wasn’t explosive enough to overtake Laurel’s defense. The Gators forced 22 turnovers and were able to convert West mistakes into points.

The Longhorns have now dropped four games in a row and fall to a 9-10 record, their first losing record in a month.
